Christmas ham

INGREDIENTS 18 generous slices of ham off the bone Dijon mustard Wholegrain mustard Flat leaf parsley (for garnish)
PREPARATION 1. Display ham on a large platter.
2. Garnish with some flat-leaf parsley and serve with small bowls of Dijon mustard and wholegrain mustard.
NOTES This is not so much a recipe as a recommendation to find a good local butcher and put in an order for your Christmas ham. A good local butcher bakes his own hams year round and sells it by the slice at a price, and indeed quality, better than the supermarkets. Make sure you have good quality mustards on hand to serve with this platter. This recipe was created by Melissa Hughes for Kidspot, New Zealand's best recipe finder.
